       This is a new manipulator with some improvements over the older inventor  manips.  It  has
       the  following  features:  [1] full interface for rotate, translate, and scale, [2] better
       feedback, [3] locate highlighting.

       SoTransformerManip is derived from SoTransform (by  way  of  SoTransformManip).  When  its
       fields change, nodes following it in the scene graph rotate, scale, and/or translate.

       As  a  subclass of SoTransformManip, this manipulator also has a 3D interface to edit some
       of its fields. In this case, the interface edits the scaleFactor, rotation and translation

       A  manipulator  differs  from  a  dragger.  When  you  move  a dragger, no other nodes are
       affected. When you move an SoTransformManip, other nodes move  along  with  it.  (See  the
       reference page for SoTransformManip).

       The   interface   for   an   SoTransformerManip  is  exactly  the  same  as  that  of  the
       SoTransformerDragger. To find out more about the interface, see  the  reference  page  for
       SoTransformerDragger.  To  find  out  how  the  manipulator  uses a dragger to provide its
       interface, see the reference page for SoTransformManip.

       On screen, this manipulator will surround the objects influenced by its  motion.  This  is
       because  it  turns  on  the  surroundScale part of the dragger (See the reference page for



     static SoType       getClassTypeId()
          Returns type identifier for this class.

     void                setLocateHighlighting(SbBool onOff )
     SbBool              isLocateHighlighting()
          Controls whether or not the dragger inside this manip will perform locate  highlighting
          is used. Default is TRUE.

     void                unsquishKnobs()
          Tells the dragger inside this manip to unsquish its rotation and scale knobs during the
          next traversal. Ordinarily, the knobs are only unsquished upon  readin  from  file  and
          when the mouse button is released at the end of a drag. If you want this to happen more
          often, then you should call this method.
